On Sunday, Punjab's ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) blasted the Centre over an "exponential" increase in fuel prices and accused it of "looting" the public.

"The country's common people are already bearing the brunt of inflation. Millions of individuals cannot afford basic necessities.

However, instead of offering help to the public at such times, the central government is exacerbating their difficulties by raising the costs of petrol-diesel, cooking gas, and other vital products "According to a party statement issued by a senior AAP leader.

Note – The constant increase in petrol and diesel prices are affecting the entire society that includes the farming community as well.
